When I'm not on my bike, you'll find me in my organic-ish garden in #Cumbria. Favourite plants? Wisteria, hellebores, peonies, philadelphus...

Taxus baccata

My poor #yew I’m certain that the farmer sprayed it...It was about 5’ tall. I have cut it back, dug it out from where it was (next to his field) and replanted it. There is a teeny bit of green 🤞🤞🤞

Must have been tough (to say the least) digging that out. Hope it recovers.

This is so sad. My yew is dying. The only explanation that I can come up with is that it has (hopefully inadvertently) been sprayed by herbicide by the farmer, as it is just at the corner of our boundary with a field 😢 I’ve now cut out most of the obviously dead bits and can only hope it will recover 🤞

No point. It was probably weeks if not months ago and it will have been a contractor. The farmer spends most of his life in Spain... 😎 @mich

There is actually a point, his contractor's pretty much killed it. If you were sprayed would you feel assaulted by chemicals.
